Pen­in­su­la de Tai­tao – 30 March 2018

After the sun­ny hikes on the Isla Jung­frau­en, we had to wait out yet ano­ther day while the storm was raging out the­re on open sea.

It was pou­ring rain for most of the day, so the on-board cine­ma was by far the best thing to do.

Wind, waves and Alba­tros­ses: sai­ling at open sea around the Pen­in­su­la de Tai­tao.

Yes­ter­day, we could final­ly set sail again. We have to get this next leg done, across the Gol­fo de Penas and around the Pen­in­su­la de Ta Ito. We still have 500 nau­ti­cal miles ahead of us to Puer­to Montt, and the days are going quick­ly.

Alba­tros­ses have an enorm­ous wingspan of more than three meters!

The open sea is always some­thing peo­p­le see with mixed fee­lings: some have to retre­at to their cab­ins while others are enjoy­ing wind and waves. Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of both groups are pre­sent on board. But the sail­ors and pho­to­graph­ers among­st us had a lot to enjoy! We made good speed with up to more than 8 knots, wind and waves in con­stant­ly chan­ging light con­di­ti­ons and many, many sea­birds. From the small pet­rels to the Grea Alba­tros­ses (Wan­de­ring, Nor­t­hern and Sou­thern Roy­al Alba­tross) and a lot in bet­ween.
